4 out of 5 eggsBest wireless combo I've found yet

Pros: Proper 5 button mouse with a button on each side. Uses all AA batteries, keyboard has volume buttons. Keys and mouse function well!

Cons: Function keys aren't grouped in quads like normal. Takes too long to figure out where F5 for refresh, or game keys like quicksave are. Scroll wheel doesn't roll in notches. It's fine for web scrolling, but TERRIBLE for list selection like in games, or drop down lists.

Other Thoughts: This is the 2nd set I've bought. First set lasted over 5 years. Finally succumbed to normal abuse.

3 out of 5 eggsThe price was decent

Pros: Standard keyboard layout and size with some extras. Decent battery life. Mouse has a decent feel and slides smoothly.

Cons: Scroll wheel is too small and touchy. I draft on a computer all day and needed something with better support for my hand, but I was unable to get used to the scroll wheel. I even used it for a few months to try and get the feel for it. But overall the wheel is just too small. The function keys are labeled with the function on the key and the "F" label above in a hard to read text.

Other Thoughts: The keyboard isn't bad for just a basic keyboard.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice key board, feels well made, short cut keys are great. Scroll wheel is smooth and precise.

Cons: Lack of light or something to tell you caps lock and num locks is on is why I will only give three eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsmixed feelings

Pros: this keyboard is by far the best keyboard I have ever used. The response is great and it is comfortable enough to use every day, but doesn't look bad either. the membrane switches feel comfortable to type on yet give a good techtile feelfeel.

Cons: that included mouse does require additional work on Microsoft's behalf. The scroll wheel does not click Nor give resistanceresistance when scrolling. this makes playing games such as watchdogs minecraft excetera very difficult to switch weapons or other tools

Other Thoughts: if it wasn't for the mouse and its scroll wheel I would give this product a 5 egg review

5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job

Pros: Plugged it in and it has worked great. I really like that the mouse has the extra 5th button on the right side. This was one of the top features I was looking for in a reasonably priced wireless mouse. Also, having used a previous generation of MS wireless desktop, I was used to the many keyboard function keys that are included.

Cons: I dislike that the function keys are labeled with shortcut icons as opposed to the function numbers. Additionally, there is not a noticeable gap between F4/F5 and F8/F9 that allows you to quickly reference where you are.

Not a big con, but after only 3 months the mouse is already needing new batteries. Was hoping it wouldn't eat through them this fast as I have other wireless mice that last much longer.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people had range issues, but my setup removes that issue. I have the dongle on my desk hooked up to a USB switch so that I can use the mouse and keyboard on different computers with the push of a button. (a KVM without the V) So because of that, the range needed is only about 24" to the rear of the desk.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but some issues.

Pros: Fairly comfortable to use, no real setup required.

Cons: I'm having an issue with the keyboard and mouse not being able to wake up my computer from sleep. I've downloaded the latest drivers for these devices and the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse center, I've changed all the power settings and device settings to ensure they are configured to wake up the computer but I've still had no luck. I have a wired keyboard plugged in beside the wireless adapter just for waking the computer up, so I know the USB ports aren't going to sleep.

Not sure what the issue is, but it's kind of annoying.
